I am so excited to be the first Certified Nurse Midwife (CNM) to join UCHealth Women’s Care Printers Park! I honor the strength and power of all women and am passionate about supporting your health and healing through personal connection, inclusion, empowerment, evidence base and holistic care to provide you with the knowledge needed to make the best decisions for yourself and family.

My primary focus is comprehensive obstetrical care including preconceptual counseling, prenatal, intrapartum and postpartum care. I only participate in hospital-based births and offer a high touch low intervention model of care. I offer full range of pain management throughout birth from alternative therapies to epidurals. Should a higher level of care be needed at any point during our time together, I remain by your side while consulting with one of my physician partners to assist in your care.

What I believe:

  • My relationship with God is most important in my life.
  • Every person living in the world deserves exceptional healthcare regardless of who they are, where they live or how
    much money they may or may not have.
  • Every human being has value and deserves to be treated with dignity and respect.
  • Lifelong learning is required for the best possible care. I am committed to lifelong learning and training to stay up to
    date on the most relevant research and standards to ensure you receive safe, meaningful, and relevant care.
  • The best patient-provider relationship is one of collaboration; therefore, we are partners in your health and your beliefs
    and opinions matter.
  • You know your body best; I am interested in hearing your story.

It is an an honor to participate in your care, and I’ll strive to provide excellent, holistic, patient-centered quality care. I look forward to meeting you and your family!

I am originally from Colorado Springs but spent many years in Kansas City while growing up. I am married to a ridiculously supportive husband, Chuck, and we have four children and one fur baby. I enjoy the outdoors and traveling. One of my favorite hobbies is doing crafts with duct tape!
